Evaluating Your Situation
Attorney Kevin Schmidt aims to fully understand your circumstances to best advise you of your debt relief options. Sometimes, there are other ways you might be able to lower your debt obligations without bankruptcy. In other situations, we can see that bankruptcy is the best path toward a clean financial slate for you.
We also go over all aspects of your finances to identify whether you should file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Each has its own requirements, benefits, and possible drawbacks, and we will examine the following factors and more:
- The nature and amount of your debt
- All sources of income in recent months
- Your regular expenses
- Your property and assets
While Chapter 7 is the quicker and more popular type of consumer bankruptcy, some people earn too much income to qualify. In addition, if you have substantial property you want to keep, Chapter 7 might not be right for you. In these situations, Chapter 13 can be a highly beneficial option. We will go over each type of case and proceed with the right type of petition for your circumstances.
The Bankruptcy Process
Once you settle on a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 case, our attorney will help you through every step of the process. The following are only some ways we help our bankruptcy clients:
- Advising you on all the necessary documents and information you should gather
- Preparing your bankruptcy petition and supporting schedules
- Filing the paperwork with the proper court
- Representing you in your meeting of creditors, in communications with the bankruptcy trustee, and in any necessary court hearings
We work to ensure the process goes smoothly and that you receive a successful discharge of your debts.
